"use genuine battery" message
I've been using CM all the time, but now I decided to switch back to stock rom.
I installed everything properly but after boot up, I got the message "use genuine battery" and the phone shuts down.
Of course I am using my original battery that was in the package.
I tried without success:
- pressing PowerOn-button for 20 seconds when battery unplugged
- cleaning battery contacts with nail polisher
By googling I found this advise that shoud fix the problem:
Many LG Models have a common error of saying Use Genuine Battery then powering off. This is a very common and fixable issue. please understand that this method will most on most LG phones but does exclude the 8100 and older models, and the exact location of the items you'll be looking for in programming will vary model to model.
If you encounter this error you can attempt to correct the phone if you have another battery for the phone that will power the handset up.
Install the battery that is working
Type in: ##LGSERVICEMENU send (##5473784296368) on the dialpad.
enter the security code: 000000
locate: SW/HW Tests or HW test or SW/HW Versions
once you locate and select the correct field you need to find "bypass booting"
in this menu you need to locate fake battery mode select it and choose on.
Your LG will now work with any battery that fits into the phone.
I tried this and borrowed a battery from a friend. With this battery everthing worked fine. But unfortunately the service-menu as described by typing ##5473784296368 didnt work on my 4xHD. Instead I tried the hidden menu 3845#*880#. But there I wasn't able to find anything like "fake battery" or so.
Does anybody know where this menu point could be?
My phone is too old so I wont get a new battery from LG Service.
thanks in advance
